What Is Going On? Why Do People In My Generation End Relationships So Quickly?

People in your generation, the under 25’s, end relationships so quickly because for one thing, they have a lot more dating options today than their parents had.

With all of the social apps and social media sites a la Facebook, they have a wide variety of options in terms of meeting potential partners that many previous generations didn’t.

People in your generation are also in the age of instant gratification. There was a time when people took a while to get to know someone. Oftentimes, they built friendships or simply took their time while courting.
